One man's dream: A $5 M. eco-hacker colony, with farms, stores and 'sleeping pods,' in a busy Brooklyn district | Capital New York
Natasha Boehm stashed this in FAVES
This seems too good to be true: http://www.indiegogo.com/hackert0wn
A six-story workspace with "a hydroponic farm, a convertible lecture hall, retail stores, sleeping “pods,” private offices, and a 38-foot silo for the testing of “flying machines”—all of which will reside on a 5,000-square-foot parking lot near the Graham Avenue L train stop in Williamsburg—and you’ve got the makings of a pretty unrealistic-looking project. Now imagine this building existing completely off the city's power grid."
Awesome! What's the catch?
